2022 Bold Predictions: Tennessee Titans

2022 Bold Predictions: Tennessee Titans
Advertisement

Like most teams, the Tennessee Titans made a handful of roster moves in the offseason. However, a somewhat shocking Draft Day trade that disgruntled a majority of their fan base was the pinnacle of their offseason. General Manager Jon Robinson, to the visual chagrin of head coach Mike Vrabel and Titans fans, pulled the trigger on a trade that sent A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles for a pick they used to select Arkansas wide receiver, Treylon Burks. For a team that was one and done in the playoffs after a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals after winning the AFC South Division and earning the first-round bye, they are vying to get to the next level and make a deep run.

Derrick Henry Will Regain his Crown

The back-to-back rushing champion broke a bone in his foot and only played in eight regular-season games. Prior to getting injured, he was well on his way to a third straight crown, with over 900 yards. At season’s end, he was still ranked in the top ten in rushing yards. Henry has never been one to listen to the naysayers who believe the Titans are running him into the ground and one significant injury will all but end his dominance. Henry will not only win the title once again, but he will also break Eric Dickerson‘s rushing record.

Malik Willis Won’t be Holding the Clipboard for the Entire Season

The writing is on the wall for quarterback Ryan Tannehill after the team selected a quarterback in the third round. Willis was projected to be a first-round pick by many experts. After Tannehill’s three-turnover performance in the Divisional Round loss to the Bengals, the Titans reportedly explored acquiring a quarterback via trade or free agency, including the reigning MVP. Tannehill ironically will suffer the same fate that earned him the starting job in Nashville in the first place. Behind inconsistent play, the team will make the decision to turn the team over to their quarterback of the future earlier than anyone expected.

No One and Done This Season

The Titans have a defense that is formidable and tends to get better as the weeks progress. They also boast arguably the best running back in the league, which opposing defenses specifically gameplan for, but still have little success at consistently stopping. The quarterback, whether it’s Tannehill or Willis will limit their mistakes and this team will make it not only to the AFC Championship Game, but to the Super Bowl.

The Young Secondary Will be Among the Top in the League

For the last handful of seasons, the team’s draft strategy seemed unorthodox. But the method to their madness has finally become more apparent. The team drafted Kristian Fulton, Caleb Farley, Amani Hooker, Elijah Molden and this post draft, Roger McCreary. With a front seven which includes Jeffery Simmons, Harold Landry and Bud Dupree, that wreaks havoc on opposing offensive lineman and quarterbacks, a secondary that is young, athletic, and likely to take chances could and will be more successful than a veteran unit that maybe has lost a step or two. This unit will perform so well that it will singlehandedly erase Titans fans displeasure with Robinson’s decision to trade Brown…well almost.
